in the united states was city year, and mitt romney was on the board. it took me a letter saying we should continue this. i called him and i was out of the white house and i said, governor, i love city year. that is what americorps is all about. i hope you will save it. he urged the republican congress to continue to support city year, and they did. i just visited the program in south africa where the youth unemployment rate exceeds 40%, 80% of the volunteers in johannesburg have a job the day they leave city year. it turns out it is good economics and good for the society. all of you should know that, and governor, i thank you for being here. the podium is yours. [applause] >> thank you, mr. president. i appreciate your kind words and that introduction is very touching. >> if there's one thing we've learned this election season, it's that a few words from bill clinton can do any man a lot of good. [laughter] after that introduction, i guess or two for the bounce. since serving as president here in america, president clinton has devoted himself to lifting the downtrodden around the world.
